Iglesia Bautista Calvario is the church we have been serving in since we arrived in Argentina. It is a blessing to be in this church: helping them reach out to the community, teaching, and discipling the Chrstians there. The beginning of June marked its 27th anniversary, and we praise God for all the people who are a part of this church family. They are truly a missions-minded church. Pretty soon they will be sending out a second young man that was trained there to pastor a nearby sister church. This is such an exciting thing to see! There is a great need for willing and able men of God to plant and lead churches to reach Argentina for Christ. Pray for these men and our opportunities to train them for this great task through the seminary here and individual discipleship and training programs
Father’s Day here in Argentina is on the same date as in the United States. We celebrated the fathers in our church with a special gift. We thank God for the many fathers the church has, since strong, Godly, leaders are few in our Latin American culture. Please pray that these men will continue to be faithful to God and to their families.
Because most moms are stay at home moms here, biblical parenting can be an overwhelming challenge, when moms and dads have not grown up in church with sound biblical advice. As a result, Rachelle and Diane Courts (Rachelle’s mom and pastor’s wife) set out to have a “moms’ class”. For the past 3 months they have co-taught on subjects of parenting, such as godly discipline and discipleship of our children. Many of the moms have said they have been implementing what they have learned and are excited! Please pray as we continue with a new series of lessons in August.
